Thank you for dropping by my Raising Jane Journal to participate in my giveaways! We’ve chosen a winner for this giveaway already (see below), but don’t be afraid to leave a comment anyway. I love reading them. And stay tuned for more great MaryJanesFarm giveaways.

In the Apr/May 2019 issue of MaryJanesFarm, “Possibilities” (on newsstands March 5), I led you here to my journal for a chance to win a FREE pound of gourmet garlic seed grown here at MaryJanesFarm. Find out more about my garlic seed here.

For a chance to win, tell me the last thing you created in your kitchen that used garlic in the comments below. I’ll toss your name into a hat and draw a lucky winner sometime mid-May. (My garlic seed is available from September to February, so we’ll ship your garlic after this year’s harvest.)

    I’m a single gal, so this Valentine’s Day I showed myself a little love by cooking up a piece of pasture raised top sirloin steak and smothering it with sautéed mushrooms and whole cloves of garlic, accompanied by roasted asparagus <3

  2. Bonny Garland says:

    Veggie soup

  4. Made some roasted garlic and made soursough roasted garlic bread, oh so good

  5. Michelle Kirby says:

    I put garlic in everything! Well, almost everything…LOL

  10. Krystle says:

    Yesterday we used garlic in our chili for supper last night! I’ve also been making my immune boosting elixir with raw garlic, lemon juice, fresh ginger or ginger tea, cayenne pepper, and honey! I had an auto immune flare and this is helping me stay healthy since I was exposed to a bad cold going around! We love garlic in our family!

  11. Lorraine Hess says:

    Beef and broccoli stir fry served over cauliflower rice. Yummy. Because my husband is diabetic we have to watch the carbs. Garlic adds so much flavor.

  12. Monica says:

    Just added some with peppers and mushroom to my scrambled eggs for breakfast!

  13. Jody says:

    My husband has had the flu and was not able to leave for his out of town job. I took advantage of having him here and being able to take care of him (the nurse in me) and made a crockpot full of ham and beans and lots of fresh garlic. It adds flavor and healing properties. He said it was the best I’ve ever made, better than chicken soup! Maybe he couldn’t taste from being so stuffed up but I’m betting on the tons of garlic! He was then able to plow/shovel over 20 inches of snow!

    Homemade Fried Chicken

  15. Karen Sokolik says:

    Home made spaghetti sauce

    I love the smell of Garlic. My favorite is Prime Rib at Christmas. I put 3 small slits in the roast and insert cloves of garlic inside. It’s almost a tradition in our home.

  17. Chrissy says:

    Made garlic bread tonight. Have you ever made toast in the skillet? It is an altogether different animal than bread in a toaster. Butter in the skillet, put in the sliced bread. Brown, watch, turn, brown. Enjoy.

  18. I had a friend that was recovering from surgery and I made her organic pasta sauce with onions and garlic on top of a gluten free pasta to be in line with her dietary restrictions. I used a local organic grass fed beef to add to the sauce.
    I rarely eat meat myself but boy was it good. Lynn….

  19. Sue Swafford says:

    My husband made Puerto Rican Spanish rice. It starts with a roux that needs fresh garlic. Uh

  20. Renota Free says:

    I always use garlic in my spaghetti and we enjoyed a full bowl just last week. It’s our 4-yr-old grandson’s favorite telling me “Granna, you’re the best cooker in the world.”

    Thank you!!

Yum!

    Pumpkin and Garlic Soup. This is my go to, homemade, comfort and cure all recipe for colds, sniffles, the flu and tummy troubles. Between the pumpkin, garlic, onions, turmeric and curry powder germs don’t stand a chance. It tastes yummy too!

  46. Anna Mejia says:

    I need to get more leafy greens in my life and was tired of steaming. I cooked some bacon, garlic, and greens. So much better!
